Cordon (indeterminate)

Prepare to be amazed by the extraordinary taste of our latest cherry tomato variety, which has been voted the best-tasting tomato out of countless contenders, even beating 'Sungold'! This two-bite wonder offers a flavour sensation that goes beyond the ordinary. Its bi-colour skin, blending sweet rich-red and savoury purple-black, creates a delightful synergy that produces a completely new and complex third flavour. The slightly oval, 5cm fruits boast a firm texture and juicy, dripless interiors. Not only does this tomato exceed expectations in taste, but it also showcases disease resistance, ensuring healthy and thriving plants thanks to its blight resistance. Experience the goodness of this exceptional tomato variety that offers much more than meets the eye. Height: 200cm (79in). Spread: 50cm (20in).

Pot up, and grow tomato plants on in warm frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days.

Choose a sheltered position in full sun on fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil, and transplant at a distance of 60cm (24") apart. Alternatively grow tomatoes in patio bags and containers in good quality compost such as John Innes No. 2. Drive a (5') cane into the soil adjacent to each plant to support them as they grow, and tie each main stem to its support with soft garden twine.

Water tomato plants frequently, to keep the compost evenly moist. Feed tomatoes regularly with a high potash plant food once the first truss of fruit has formed.

Tie the main stems to their supports and remove any sideshoots that develop between the main stem and the leaf stems. Once the plant has produced 6 or 7 trusses, pinch out the top of the main stem. This process of 'sideshooting' and 'stopping' will increase the availability of light and air movement around the developing fruit, and focus the plants energy on producing a good crop of high quality tomatoes. Tomatoes can be harvested as they ripen from July to September.
